The Riskier, The Sexier…

There’s just something about adventurous, risk-takers that make them sexier.

Last year, I watched amazing paragliders on top of Mount Pilatus jump off  in front of me! It was the coolest thing. I don’t know ANYTHING about paragliding at all but watching them made me want to do it someday. There’s just something attractive about adventurous guys. Maybe it was the overwhelming scenery, or the adrenaline rush vibe that surrounded me that day. Either way, I like what I was seeing!

My curiosity kicked in and I was eager to find out who they were, where they were from, were they single, oh you know that sort of thing. I tried to eavesdrop and I was pretty sure they were speaking French. Locals maybe? Even better.

And I thought it was even cooler when they were just hanging up there, reading a book while up in the air!

I hope I get to do this some day.

Paraglide. And maybe date a Swiss. Whichever comes first.

Not so much read a book while paragliding. Baby steps. Baby steps.
